Teany Book: Stories, Food, Romance, Cartoons and, of Course, Tea Reviews
Moby is a creative musician, artist, and business entrepreneur, and he and Kelly share a refreshing response to tea.
I was slightly disappointed by this book. Thought that there would be even more about tea and that I’d find the recipes and background information more interesting. But, some recipes such as those in the middle eastern plate, the French toast with plum syrup, and the chocolate and green tea pudding look delicious. Some good recipes also for personal care products. And I think my favorite tip was how to easily and healthfully decaffeinate tea! And I’d like to try the rose petal foot soak. But mostly, would love to get to New York and hit all the vegan restaurants, including this one.
Not just a recipe book, this book chronicles the development of the tea house in the "lower east side" of NYC since the immigrants started arriving; also some good vegan teatime recipes, tea lore, tea natural cures, and fun stories and illustrations. Basically this was $2 at a bookstore closing sale and there was no way it wasn't coming home with me!
Look man, you know how even Moby's aware he's annoying? That self awareness shows up in the book, so even as you headshake while reading, you're OK with it.I'm the purchase of vegan butter away from trying some of his recipes. More later on how that goes.
I have used several of the recipes in the book and have created playlists for the ideas given in the book.Quick, fun little book.
Moby is so cute and tiny! I also learned from this book that if you use a tea bag twice, on the second time it will brew decaf! Genius!
So much more than a "cookbook". Lots of delicious ideas, as well as cartoons, stories, photos, etc. A total whim buy, but I don't regret it. Good for a peruse over, what else? A hot cup of tea.
Thank you for the book, Matt!
Stories, food, romance, cartoons, and, of course, tea. Moby and Kelly Tisdale's restaurant in NYC...Teany.
